Where is It?

Madhu Road National Park is located in northern Sri Lanka, roughly 25 kilometers (16 miles) east of Mannar. Madhu Road is home to a wide variety of birds. Alexandrine parakeet, ashy-crowned sparrow-lark, ashy prinia, ashy woodswallow, Asian koel, Asian palm swift, baya weaver, black drongo, black-hooded oriole, black-rumped flameback, and black-winged kite are among them.

On June 28, 1968, the Madhu Road area was classified as a sanctuary under the 1937 Fauna and Flora Protection Ordinance . The sanctuary covered a total area of 26,677 ha (65,920 acres). Following the end of the civil war in Sri Lanka, the government announced plans to turn several sanctuaries in the Northern Province into national parks. The government subjected the refuge to unlawful sand extraction, tree removal, and uncontrolled expansion

 An Integrated Strategic Environmental Assessment of Northern Province, published in October 2014 by the government with assistance from the United Nations Development Programme and the United Nations Environment Programme, recommended that the Madhu Road sanctuary, excluding developed areas, and the surrounding state-owned forests be designated as a national park. As a result of absorbing surrounding state-owned forests, the sanctuary’s area would rise from 26,677 ha (65,920 acres) to 63,067 ha (155,843 acres) under the recommendation. 

Madhu Road, together with Adam’s Bridge, Chundikkulam, and Delft, was named national parks by the government in May 2015.  Madhu Road Sanctuary was designated a national park on June 22, 2015, with an extent of 63,067 ha (155,843 acres)
